Netflix subscribers have been caught up in Stranger Things content for what they feel like forever, with the third batch of episodes departing in July 2019, but the wait is almost over. The phenomenon returns in under two weeks, and viewership records are expected to be obliterated when the day comes.
Three years is an eternity in television, but not once has Stranger Things threatened to abandon its status as the crown of streaming services episodic, even though heavy players like The Witcher, Squid Game, and Bridgerton are coming along to dominate the cultural conversation in the interim.
The third season finale left a lot of doors open and many questions unanswered, but Millie Bobby Brown on The Tonight Show revealed that we needn''t worry about any narrative stones remaining.
The beginning of the end of this series is the main part, and the theme of this storyline. We really need to dig deep into the [Elevens] beginning and how she became who she is with the people around her, and how to make that autonomy better and become this woman on her own. So this storyline this season really digs into that. Definitely lots of replies, lots of crying.
Schedules throughout the world are being changed so the first volume of Stranger Things 4 can be devoured in a single sitting, with the opening salvo landing on May 27 before the back half premieres five weeks later on July 1.
